April - NaPoWriMo - 5

That blank stare, was it mine or yours?
And you’re still there.
I thought we’d said goodbye.

I watched your empty eyes then as you left
That half-felt wave
Like words still not quite penned upon the page.

I watched your empty gestures, wondered still
Were they once filled
With love for me?

That blank stare.
You’re still there.
Okay, I’m trying to talk to you.
If you’d just answer once or twice maybe
Don’t look at me like I’m not there
Like you just couldn’t care

Less.
That blank stare.
The muse demanding poetry
Of me.
It isn’t fair.

Written for ReadWritePoem #5 give your poetry a personality
